EPCOT is pretty COVERED in construction right now.
There are a few projects around World Showcase, but MOST of those construction walls are up in Future World as the EPCOT Transformation continues. Disney just announced that Club Cool will be returning and Mouse Gear will be replaced by the new Creations Shop. Could work on these be starting soon?
A few days ago, Disney filed two permits for the address coded to the former Innoventions East building. This building previously held the Innoventions exhibits and Mouse Gear. It’s been undergoing some MAJOR changes over the past year.
The first permit is for “AV Installation” with the contractor PSX Worldwide Audiovisual Technologies. This contractor does a variety of show-based environments for theme parks, casinos, theaters, and more.
This permit likely means that work is beginning on some sort of system to add audio and visual effects to an aspect of Innoventions East. We know that the Creations Shop is getting a brand new design of its own. Perhaps the installation is for the new store!
The second permit was filed with Brilliant Creative Fabrication to “build and install wall unit.” Brilliant Creative Fabrication has done work for Disney parks before but does not note specific projects on their website.
This wall unit will be added to Innoventions East, per this permit. Perhaps it has something to do with the Mickey Mouse-inspired wall art that will be featured in the Creations Shop. That would be pretty neat!
We’ll be keeping a close eye on the permits in EPCOT to see how progress continues on the EPCOT transformation. Stay tuned to DFB for all the latest updates!
